I haven’t written much here lately. Busy elsewhere. I’ve been working on the first one hundred pages of my novel and following the Editor’s Report.

One issue that came up in the Report focused on allowing scenes to reach their natural development rather than trying to force the drama. This often happens when the author has plans for a major character, plans which the character wouldn’t usually follow. A bit like the debate in Theology: Free Will versus Predestination – i.e. who’s in the charge here: the writer or the character in question?

I’ve also dealt with some redundant sections. You know the sort, writing that neither helps nor hinders the novel. The story wouldn’t suffer if those sections were to go.

The central part of the novel needs the most work in terms of pacing and plot – so I’m bracing myself.

  1. I unfortunately was involved with WYAM in the early 80’s . I ended up having a nervous breakdown and was on valium for an entire year. YWAM really sucks!!. There needs to be a documentary done on this screwed up group.
